I don't know (have you seen dean potter's old free solo vid of the nose? sick.) I never really understood how the Huber brothers did their speed ascents- I was reading in the "El Cap confidential" feature in rock & Ice. They said the front guy would be self belayed while the lower one would jugged. But how did the lower one jug (i.e. anchored from?) if the top guy is moving? sorry to digress, but it's been buggin me and I'm sure one of you seasoned guys has got the answer.

Sorry to beat a deadhorse Cool but he doesn't free solo The Nose. He solos The Nose. As soon as he starts aiding, that's not "free." He free solos sections, but not all of it. I wouldn't have even posted this, but I wanted to make my bad pun...
